Outdoor grilling is an American tradition, and Christian County Extension offered a workshop which allowed twenty participants a chance to enhance their skills in the art of grilling. Jenna Hogan, Nutrition and Wellness Educator with University of Illinois Extension, taught participants fun and relaxing ways grill different foods.

Participants learned to use indoor and outdoor grills, of both charcoal and gas varieties, by preparing a variety of meats, fruits and vegetables on the grill.

Participants received healthy recipes, grilling tips, and information on safe food handling. In addition, they enjoyed tasting the foods they have helped grill that evening.
